The awesomeness of Kelsey Mitchell

So, just how awesome is Kelsey Mitchell?

As the Buckeyes season wrapped up with a round of 32 loss to North Carolina, Kelsey set the following records...
  • With three three-point field goals, including a tying basket with 39 seconds remaining, Kelsey Mitchell set the all-time NCAA single-season record for three-point field goals made with 127. Lisa McMullen of Arkansas State (1990-91) and Sade Logan of Robert Morris (2007-08) previously held the record with 126.
  • Mitchell made at least one three pointer in all 35 games this season, an NCAA record for consecutive games in a season with a three-point field goal.  
  • Mitchell scored 873 points this season, which leads the country. That is also the second-most points ever scored by an NCAA Division I freshman in a season. She finished 25 points behind Tina Hutchinson of San Diego State, who scored 898 points during the 1983-84 season.
  • Mitchell's 873 points scored is a Big Ten single-season record, previously set by Kelly Mazzante of Penn State (872) in 2001-02.
